YOU -- you too, can be Judge, Jury, and Executioner.
(if only in a voyeuristic sort of way)
THANKS to the wonders of modern Technology
and the lack of "Real News" Standards in the Big 3 Cable outlets.
I've just been watching a Live Feed of the Casey Anthony Trial
Non-stop ... drip, drip, drip ... for at least the last 15 minutes.
The Same Live Feed on CNN, MSNBC and FOX. (Has this been going on all week?)
Do you have your Verdicts ready folks, -- Psst! you might be called in as a substitute Juror -- So take good notes. ... The Reel News is rolling ...
Here's what you missed yesterday:
Funny how these News-feed-Machines, had absolutely NO TIME for a Live Feed for the Congressional Minority Leader, a few weeks ago ...
The faults of the "News" Media are many.
But their Mob-treatment of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi recently -- followed by an equally stunning reversal of that same treatment --
tells you about all you need to know about how far Corporate Media has fallen ... since the days of "That's the way it was ..."
ALL Major Cable Nets Cut Away When Pelosi Talks Jobs Over Weiner (VIDEO)
by Brian Beutler, talkingpointsmemo.com -- June 16, 2011
Her conference began minutes after the news of Weiner's impending resignation leaked, and so reporters and cameras scrambled to what otherwise would have been a fairly routine press event. Indeed, because Dems are in the minority, it's not uncommon for Pelosi events to be under-attended by members the media. Not this time.
[Pelosi announced: ]
"As usual we're here to talk about jobs, about protecting Medicare and protecting the middle class. If you're here to ask a question about Congressman Weiner, I won't be answering any."
If you thought disappointed news networks decided then to make do with the other items on her agenda, you'd be wrong. All three of the major cable nets -- CNN, MSNBC, and Fox -- all cut away right then.
Cut! Go to commercial now, quick ...
Pelosi went on to "talk about jobs, about protecting Medicare and protecting the middle class."
And the Corporate Media, couldn't be bothered by those "mundane topics".
Frankly, the couldn't "give a rip" about covering vital topics that effect every American's daily lives and our very shaky future well-being.
They couldn't cut cameras fast enough -- once Pelosi went "all boring", on them.
If it wasn't "Reel news" -- the Gossip Media well, they just CAN'T be bothered!
Tell me again, WHY do we watch them again?
Why do we give their Advertisers the time of day?
Of our very busy days?
Frankly the Anthony Weiner resignation, as expected as it was, has done little to "improve the outlooks for Jobs, Medicare, or Middle Class security" now has it?
Perhaps, that's just as the Corporate Media, intends it?
Afterall Gossip News, is always "breaking" somewhere ... Next!
YOU snooze -- you Lose!
America's Jury Sez: Guilty! ... (I think. But what Do I know? I have to work most days.)
Where is that "Balloon Boy", anyways? It's not "Reel News" unless it's "Riveting News" ... apparently, in this brave, new era of Non-Breaking Non-News -- 24/7.
